Get Your Moog On At The MoMM

by The Editors on August 29, 2009


Anyone who loves electronic music owes a huge debt of respect to Bob Moog. Everyone from Kraftwerk, Gary Numan, and Devo to Abba and George Harrison have used Moog’s technology to make music. This weekend the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbadistan is kicking off their latest exhibition: “Waves of Inspiration: The Legacy of Moog.”

The exhibition focuses on the life, work and philosophy of Bob Moog, a pioneer in the field of electronic music, developing the Moog synthesizer in 1964. The history of Bob Moog also encompasses the story of how the synthesizer became commercially accessible to musicians for the first time, and how it provided them with new realms of sonic expression.

On Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 1 PM exhibition Advisor Brian Kehew (Moog Cookbook, The Who) and Larry Fast (Synergy, Peter Gabriel) will present a multimedia exploration of the life, work and philosophy of Bob Moog. The Museum will broadcast this event LIVE over the internet on Sunday, August 30th at 1 PM (PST). To attend online, please visit and click on the “Live Broadcast” link.

Tickets are $10; FREE for Museum Members. Purchase tickets online or call 760-438-5996.
